good morning at nine in the morning here in moscow now this is art international my name's kevin though in very good company first in this half hour of news has been revealed that around two hundred seventy gehad this of recently returned to france after fighting in iraq and syria have now been arrested and the courts are currently plowing through the cases of the others the numbers have been revealed by the french interior minister who also highlighted that the terror threat remains extremely high there in an attempt to try and rein in the extremism france had opened its first de radicalisation centenary year ago but the facilities already hit the buffers. reports. it was billed as a front seat to its program with jihad ists was the country's first radicalization center when it opened last year ati's police was here.
and this is rehab for extremists once inside psychologists here will provide therapy and counselors will teach students about citizenship. but just months later the shutters down so where did it all go wrong. at a cost of two point five million euros per year knowing that people were treated none finished the course one resident from this center was even a rested for having links to behind the paris tax cheats and fifteen while leave from his rehabilitation and since february not a single person has been here the deed radicalisation so did this venture of a value for money. it is a complete fiasco everything is to be rethought everything is to be reconstructed
decoding to people will see me putting it to me yes i would say this is a fiasco. money spent this way is a waste there are so many other things to do but to spend it on radicalized people know there are other associations and other centers to spend money on. this could not have. organized this way just letting people in and convincing them to think the other way or to see differently their four or five people at once this is too expensive the residents say. it's closed because it's nothing but. i was against this center from the beginning and i am happy. this center should not have been here there's a nuclear plant near here. i think the location was inappropriate as it is quite close to the town to the kids this is too close to houses and not very secure and we were not properly informed we did not receive any information many people sold
their houses because of the center a complete failure that's how many people are describing this project and many and now left wondering if france has a concrete solution to the estimated fifteen. in this country. since it's terrorism expert david low believes it's not enough to. form a community and to preach the. french this time on this issue. you know we talk about. mr. was. really removing individuals who were chateau in a remote part of france or rural part of france and preach to them there are successes it's hard for us mr. cain to this issue tried to
directly. help help those individuals who've been drawn towards terrorist activity very you know just just by tilting move away from the community. and just preaching to them this is been a lot of promise of and this is why. became. so as frontrunner mains on edge police of terror investigation after an instant at the eiffel tower where a man to tend to the forces way past security with a knife the suspect reportedly tried to carry out an isolation speired terror attack and shouted god is greatest in arabic at the time or trying to barges way into the huge paris landmark on saturday night no one was injured but the eiffel tower was evacuated initially the instant wasn't treated as terrorism but now seems french prosecutors have begun an investigation over the suspects reported links to radical groups france has been a state of emergency for more than a year and
a half now following the november twenty fifth terror attacks in the capital. elsewhere this monday around fifteen hundred afghans including scores of children are in search of shelter after being caught in taliban eisel and u.s. airstrikes near a strategic eastern city there some of been describing their ordeal. islamic state groups brutally attacked civilians and the afghanistan national then foreign forces came to the battlefield then the u.s. dropped the mother of all bombs on the village what is left is ruins.
through does a lot of what has come up you should be sure to give it. a shot. get it isis militants slaughtered our own call saying it was a spy who fled since they threatened to kill us the next day. islamic state militants slaughtered our five cousins so front of us they could have come and killed us any time too so we left our home. first isis attacked our village then came american airstrikes now we don't have anything everything is destroyed.
in time in syria ruptly video news agencies filmed exclusive video from inside the town of al sickness after its liberation from eisel by the syrian army. the operation to clear the last remaining terrorists is only going still there is the last islamic state stronghold in homs province on saturday reports emerged that syrian government troops and surrounded the islamic state of three sides the retaken towns about fifty kilometers from the border with province which is still vote mostly under control. to the united states this morning tensions remain a boiling point in the white house there with more major reshuffling among donald trump's top team this time a series of sackings among his national security aides but even the man in charge of the dismissals is in the firing line too over what might have driven his
decisions as colored mopin reports next gen mcmaster national security advisor to donald trump his loyalty to the president is supposed to be a default quality except now instead it's widely in question mcmaster made a decision to allow susan rice his predecessor in the job and long time obama ally to keep full access to classified information. the national security council will continue to work with you to ensure the appropriate security clearance documentation remains on file to allow you access to classified information. this revelation emerged just weeks after it was revealed that susan rice had been unmasking members of the trump team who happened to be mentioned in classified intelligence reports by default the names are redacted but susan rice had been making sure that the names and information was readily available to anyone with a clearance to see classified government documents and potentially leak this
information to the media susan rice's actions were flagged by as i recall one watt mic a member of the trumpet ministration since january apparently his revelation struck the wrong chord with mcmaster who has now dismissed him and it appears that's how it works with the general if he doesn't like you you go these people laid the very foundation of trump's foreign policy promises as a candidate we've been moving from one wrecked was intervention to another coup in libya syria iraq iran this destructive cycle bad decisions we cannot be the policeman of the world now that most of those who shape trumps foreign policy have gone we have this my attitude toward syria and assad has changed very much and i know you ordered a target a new jersey state or if you can see it now trump may have come to washington promising that you would drain the swamp that's proving to be pretty
difficult especially when you're already neck deep in it it will come up and artsy new york well according to reports the security clearance given to susan rice was a regular procedure issued for every living former presidential advisor rice says she's never requested the identities of trump's team members be revealed for political purposes. in the white house to the u.s. state of oregon next with tensions of also been high there as violent clashes are breaking out between rival rallies in the city of portland. and fascist groups faced off with a so-called freedom march nearby organizers claim the purpose of that rally was to peacefully promote a quality the rival protests as though accuse them of being white supremacists and chanted slogans fighting them broke out flags were burned pepper spray was used three arrests were made. while the signs you'd expect to see in
a butcher's window one saying how killing animals is violent and unjust might come as a bit of a surprise to some customers but nonetheless one shop in california has agreed to display it in a so-called peace deal with vegan activists who've been rallying outside the shop for months. the only one. in the backyard pine north. and that is hiring. the b. . as well as the anti meat sign demonstrators from the group direct actions everywhere demanding a shop be turned into a vegan butchery whatever that might be they also want the right to protest their toys see here group spokesman mark johnson explains a bit more about their mission. as with the successful social movements throughout history when we when we do these public demonstrations we are intending to
dramatize an issue and get an issue on the table because we feel like it's an issue that we are inevitably going to win when it is discussed on a wide enough scale we know that we are on the side of of justice we are on the side of compassion and nonviolence we know that people don't actually want to support violence towards animals and it's only because we live in a society that that normalizes it so much that it is allowed to persist we intend to make berkeley california the united states leader on animal rights issues we intend to liberate the city of berkeley by banning all violence towards animals by twenty twenty five in effect banning meat in berkeley as part of a broader plan to pass a constitutional amendment for animal rights and on human discrimination that's pervasive in our society. the shop in question here belongs to want to know and husband she describes the activists actions as extremists and she says nothing but ethical extortion a view echoed by the californian comedian geoffrey cling to the protests were
a form of extortion because essentially they were saying. do this for us or we won't stop harassing you so yeah that is expression it's kind of like how the mafia used to say pay us for protection or we're going to destroy your shop that's going to feels protesters chose a small butcher shop because it's a smaller target so they feel like they could have a bigger impact a smaller shop would be easier for them to extort then a big farm or a big factory if they chose mcdonald's there's a chance that mcdonald's lawyers may get involved and ultimately these people are they're kind of just children who are scared of consequences so they'll only do something if they feel like it's going to work out. and three protesters have resorted to extreme measures over the years of course to try to discourage people from eating animals include some pretty good wrenching stones be prepared though even though they're faked up some of what you're about to see is a big graphic. this
a flooded diamond mine in far east russia remains unknown this monday morning as rescuers continue their efforts to try and find these guys hundred forty three others have been saved since friday's instant in one of the world's largest excavated holes as you're about to see one of the survivors who spent nearly twenty four hours on the ground there in the floods has been talking about what they went through. a monday and friday morning you had to work your day begins and then disaster strikes. so warshel was always good i was shift started certainly the lights went out visually got windy and misty out of nowhere a massive wave hit me i swallowed dirty salt water i couldn't breathe thirty six year old alicia. was one of the one hundred fifty one minus left trapped
underground in a flooded diamond mine in russia's far east what we call the water was cold and dirty and it was my chest there were obstacles pipes and boards and all the rubbish or so that i had to move with my leg badly injured and it was difficult of course by the way but what can i do i wanted to live at least as it was fighting against time as he tried to escape i got. my leg was trapped the i am pipes were bending because of the water pressure i had to try and get my leg out without breaking it i got lucky. and i looked for any way to be rescued but a phone was my only hope however all the phones were destroyed but fate played into alicia's hands when he managed to make brief contact with emergency crews he spent nearly twenty four hours trapped underground before he was eventually rescued. and he said he is one of the lucky ones but there is some line is still fighting
for their lives trapped for days already with their family and friends distraught rescue is still hard at work trying to retrieve those that are missing one can only hope that if and when they're found that they will survive this horrendous ordeal. and look at the size of the image being trapped down there are trees near to do reporting on the ongoing rescue efforts for the stricken diamond mine workers in far east russia. so the arabia is seeking to end the lawsuits accusing it of involvement in the nine eleven attacks the country is being sued by the family members of thousands of those killed and more than twenty thousand businesses and insurers documents filed in a manhattan court last week say the accuser's card proves that ria or affiliated bodies aided the terrorists neither proper allegations nor any evidence supports conclusory assertions that saudi arabia caused the nine eleven attacks by
knowingly or even recklessly aiding the terrorists who committed the. so the arabia's accused of helping the perpetrators behind nine eleven to stay in the united states the lawsuit also claims riyadh was aware of money transactions from saudi charities to al qaida and also furthermore the senior saudi officials stayed at the same hotel as three of the hijackers the night before the attacks the ability to sue foreign governments over terrorism only became possible in the u.s. last september that's when congress unanimously overruled president obama's veto of with the justice against sponsors of terrorism known as just currently there are twenty five lawsuits against the saudis seeking billions of dollars in compensation the wife of one of the victims says she's confident the courts that will keep up the pressure prior to an act in a walk called the justice against france of terrorism act jast we were unable to hold saudi arabia accountable and a us court of law and now that that law was enacted last september we can now move
forward with our lawsuit they filed their dismissal on august first and now we have over second that's our deadline to respond to their dismissal and then the judge will make a determination to grant them a dismissal or to keep them in the case and we believe now with the law on our side jast that there is no way that it will be dismissed and that this lawsuit will continue and go forward after many years of public pressure last summer the u.s. government declassified twenty eight pages from the nine eleven commission report which detail how some of the hijackers received financial support from individuals who may have links to saudi arabia terry strother believes those connections could trace back to the highest levels of riyadh's government. as we argued for over ten years that it was not a threat to national security to release them finally they did release the twenty
eight pages and in those twenty pages we saw a direct line to saudi arabia funding the nine eleven attacks they still have withheld about three pages worth of information in those twenty pages that we would like to see released but what we've seen so far show is that money was going through the saudi arabian embassy in washington d.c. and being funneled out to california to some of the hijackers prior to the attacks well they said no high ranking officials which leaves the entire lower level ranking officials possibly involved in the attacks and we do have evidence that shows that they were and the reason we need to get this into a courtroom and have it all eric is it's highly unlikely these lower level agents were working without any knowledge of the higher level you know levels in the saudi arabian government knowing what was happening comes. french president is facing a barrage of criticism over plans to create an official first lady role for his
wife it's despite though my remark on having banned that lawmakers were employing their spouses we talked to a french publisher a journalist who says the president's becoming whether i'm french copying his american counterpart mrs merkel as decision could be a real big mistake the main reason for that is that he thinks as an american legion signs all took and moves are putting up to prove that mr merkel is more and more out of touch with the french reality when becoming a prison for instance he chum to the french in the months or years with a head on his heart's blood he probably saw an american movies but this kind of religious values i should suit is complete on french an explanation for this love of america that's he has been supported like french. phillipe by the way by the young leaders of the french american foundation whose aim is to strengthen the
links between france and the u.s. a petition against the proposals now gathered over one hundred eighty thousand signatures two hundred thousand it can be presented to president micron all this coming the same time as the latest polls show his approval rating plummeting right now when he was elected he had more than sixty percent of the population onside now after less than a hundred days in office that's fallen to record thirty six percent low. again. proposals not surprise it was announced during his election campaign because it has become part of his american way of thinking thinking that the french state could be business for other than less this decision could be one of the moves to he has ever taken sixty five percent of the french disapprove of this new decision purities flagging only. thirty six percent of french at the french are happy with this new leader and he will soon face

a clip from this program but if you look very carefully you will notice that there is the not able difference the voice used in that report does not belong to any of our reporters because maybe if it was one of their reporters in africa they'd be saying things like this welcome from a broken eastern libya well we know that coalition military planners are carrying out what they call bomb damage assessment just to check on exactly what level of destruction they have cause to colonel get out there defenses and radar installations they hit because t.v. stations and civilian infrastructure weren't hit in africa's richest per capita country by any of the hundred tomahawk missiles right they will lead to sideways carry out more attacks so night on those same targets more strikes on the same targets does that maybe she reported betray one iota of what it would feel for civilians where he lives in britain to undergo.
